Stay at Quality Inn & Suites

Ferris State University, a historical Michigan institution. In 1884, Woodbridge N. Ferris founded an educational institution in Big Rapids to help working men and women in Michigan. Ferris was called the Big Rapids Industrial School until 1899 when it was renamed the Ferris Institute. The school became a state college in 1949 and was renamed Ferris State College in 1963, becoming Ferris State University in 1987. The University has grown into an 880-acre campus with state-of-the-art facilities.
FSU Admissions and Academics. Over 12,000 students enroll at FSU. The first Ferris class in 1884 had 15 students, and the University still has a ratio of one instructor for every 15 students. Classes are taught at all levels by professional teachers, not graduate assistants. Students study in more than 170 different educational programs, including doctorates, master's, bachelor's, and associate degrees. Seven of Ferris's colleges are based in Big Rapids, including Allied Health Sciences, Arts and Sciences, Business, Education and Human Services, Optometry, Pharmacy and Technology.  [Top]
